Can you imagine a car as small as Volkswagen Golf carry out as much as 400 horsepower? Well, you don’t have to imagine that anymore.

Thanks to ABT Sportline, this was made possible in the Golf R. The best part about it is that it is road legal. Also, that is not all there is to the hot hatchback, as it had also been given some styling upgrades.

Most of the increase in the engine power comes from the engine tuning that ABT Sportline did. The tuner equipped the Golf R with a unique ABT Engine Control unit that maximizes the Golf’s turbocharged four cylinder that produces 310 horsepower up to a full 400 ponies. But it is not just the horsepower that benefits from this, because the torque also goes up to 368 pound-feet, and it is spread out to the all-wheel drive system.
